What Makes Clarksville “The Queen Of The Cumberland”?
In 1785 Clarksville was the first city in Tennessee to become incorporated. It was named for the Revolutionary War hero General George Rogers Clark, who was also the brother of the famous explorer William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expeditions.
As you will recall from your history lessons, Clarksville’s location on the Cumberland River was instrumental to the development of commerce in the area. What you may not remember is, after the Revolutionary War the state was unable to pay cash to the soldiers for their service, so they were paid in land. Ex-soldiers helped build and re-build the Clarksville area throughout the years. A massive fire of 1878 destroyed most of downtown. However, it was later rebuilt. In 1999 a massive tornado went through Clarksville, again causing major destruction from which the town was rebuilt…again. In 2010 unprecedented flooding of the Cumberland River occurred forcing the city to rebuild for a third time.
Rock music icon Jimi Hendrix spent his early days in music in Clarksville; and Clarksville has been the location for the filming of many movies, music videos, documentaries, and of course the famous song by the Monkees in 1966 “Take The Last Train To Clarksville” refers to this Tennessee city.
Today there is so much see and do in Clarksville:
- Roxy Theatre is located in downtown and is the oldest live theatre in Clarksville.
- Clarksville City Arboretum is located in Fairgrounds Park and on the banks of the Cumberland River.
- Port Royal State Park was first settled in in the 1700s and is an historical park. The Red River and the Trail of Tears are unique attractions for park visitors.
- L & N Train Station is the train depot referred to in the Monkee’s hit song. Visitors can learn more about history, see exhibits and artifacts, trains and much more.
- Dunbar Cave State Park is a must-see place to explore for its natural water, historic drawings on the cave walls, as well as places to hike and explore.
